The use of brief rating scales to assess cognitive/neuropsychological status has been studied in the field of psychology for several decades. While some scales like the Mini-Mental Status Exam (Folstein M, Folstein S, McHugh P. Journal of Psychiatric Research 12: 189–198, 1975) (MMSE) have been used and even accepted as the gold standard in medical and mental health areas, advances in knowledge and scale design have allowed for the introduction of a more sensitive and abbreviated measure. In the current environment of shorter hospital stays and circumscribed treatments, the need to quickly and accurately assess a patient’s mental status has become paramount. Additionally, the comorbidity of cognitive dysfunction in psychiatric populations is being increasingly recognized and studied. Brief rating scales can allow clinicians to assess and make recommendations for follow-up treatment in populations that may have increased difficulty tolerating a full neuropsychological battery. This chapter is designed to provide both empirical and clinical information to assist the reader make informed decisions about the scales to choose and how that data might be applied in a variety of clinical settings.
